Hi folks--

I'm sure I'm going to need help on specifics as my son goes through his conversion process and when that happens I'll ask here.

First question: Are parents allowed to be sponsors? I ask because my sponsor told me just now that she was told that spouses and parents are NOT permitted to be sponsors, but my daughter was her husband's sponsor in the Nashville diocese.

Thanks in advance!

No, parents cannot be sponsors either for baptism or for confirmation.

i was also told it was not "a good idea" for spouses to be a sponsor ... but i also know that it was allowed... at least it was back when i converted and that was circa 1998 .... so as you are aware from your experience, it does happen... it just might not be the best situation available

It used not to be, but it is now.
